The lights are on
The Sims 4 was a highlight of EA's Gamescom 2014 press briefing, with new features. We've seen the push-and-pull customization and the new emotional tailoring. We've also seen the build mode that is easier than ever, but today we got a look at the new gallery.
As players upload their homes and Sims into the gallery, others can easily download them into their worlds. We also got a glimpse of an odd new botany system that allows players to create rare hybrid plants.
Poor EA chief operating officer Peter Moore found himself in the digestive system of a killer cow plant with a tempting cake tongue. Thankfully for Peter, the strange plantimal vomited him out.
The Sims 4 is coming in a few weeks on September 2. If you want to get started making your Sims now though, you're in luck. The Create-a-Sim demo is available today, and you'll be able to import your friends and family into the final game.
